Info Edge invests Rs 3.43cr in mobility and SaaS company Rare Media

Info Edge, through its wholly-owned subsidiary, has invested Rs 3.43 crore in a Delhi-based Business-to-Business (B2B) mobility and SaaS company Blue Dolphin, run and owned by Rare Media, the company informed BSE.

Rare Media is an associate company of Info Edge, thus making it a related party. The deal is done on arm length basis, which means both the companies will run independently. With this investment, Info Edge holds 43.86% stake in the company on fully converted and diluted basis.

The Delhi-based company was incorporated in 2012, and offers enterprise field force automation platforms like attendance apps. It offers products to clientele across verticals such as healthcare, retail, hospitality, among others. The startup had previously raised $1.1 million from Info Edge in 2015.

It charges commission on each transaction while handling payments and logistics.
